The watch strap was developed by the British Ministry of Defense and named after the item’s stock number. It was issued to soldiers provided they filled out a G1098 form, which gave the strap another nickname - the G10. As with most military equipment, the strap was created for functionality. Its one-piece design provides fail-safe operation as the strap connects to each of the spring bars separately. If one of the bars ever breaks or pops out, the watch will remain securely on your wrist. Product Benefits:
Hand-crafted with genuine Italian calf leather
One size fits nearly all wrists, infinitely adjustable
Fail-safe — remains on the wrist even if a spring bar breaks
Superior comfort, leather molds to your wrist with time
Easily pairs with any watch - cheap, expensive, vintage or modern
Inexpensive way to add variety to your watch wardrobe a Military strap will fit nearly any wrist as it’s infinitely adjustable. On a smaller wrist, the excess strap can be fashionably tucked back into the keeper. In the event of a larger wrist without any excess, the end of the strap terminates near the second keeper.
It’s a perfect fit for all. Besides practicality, the Military strap comes with an unmatched cool factor. How cool?
James Bond 007 cool. In Goldfinger, we see the original Bond, played by Sean Connery, checking his Rolex Submariner which sports a Military style strap. Undoubtedly, this helped propel the Military strap into the mainstream and engraved it into the hearts of watch enthusiasts across the globe. What’s great about the G10 is its versatility. You don’t have to be a sharp looking M16 British Agent driving an Aston Martin DB5 to rock one of these. It pairs great with anything cheap or expensive, vintage or modern. It will work just as well on a Timex as it does on a Rolex, Omega or even a Patek Phillipe. It’s an inexpensive way to add some variety to your watch wardrobe.

This good looking strap arrived without a buckle, which rendered it inoperable, so I returned it.
Very well made and soft leather
Great strap, comfy and quality. Only issue is the length, I have 7.6” wrists and this strap has almost no tail to tuck in, I am on the second to last hole. Other than that it’s great.
The quality of the leather is very nice. I used it for my Rolex DateJust. It really look expensive NATO strap. It’s a five star for me.
